Fifty shades of football: Day 13

(We’re counting down to the first Saturday of college football, now 38 days away)

Sorry, got up today with a mission to get a handle on the likelihood that any Penn State refugees might find their way to the Magnolia State. I’m rather skeptical, but you can read the story in Thursday’s Daily Journal.

Meanwhile, here’s a little bonus bit – the SEC’s season-openers, listed from toughest to easiest. This is based on my own (lightly informed) impression:

South Carolina at Vanderbilt – No. 1 because it’s a league game

Tennessee vs. N.C. State

Auburn vs. Clemson

Alabama vs. Michigan

Kentucky vs. Louisville

Texas A&M vs. Louisiana Tech … upset alert, as game is in Shreveport

Ole Miss vs. Central Arkansas

Florida vs. Bowling Green

Arkansas vs. Jacksonville State … beat Ole Miss in 2010

LSU vs. North Texas

Mississippi State vs. Jackson State

Georgia vs. Buffalo

Missouri vs. SE Louisiana
